El 12 de octubre de 1931 se inauguró en Río de Janeiro, Brasil, uno de los monumentos más grande, famosos e impresionantes del mundo.
Christ the Redeemer, also known as Christ of Corcovado (because it was built on the Corcovado mountain) is a large statue of Jesus Christ with open arms. It is 30 meters high and is currently the third largest statue dedicated to Christ (the largest, 36 meters, was inaugurated in 2010 in Świebodzin, Poland). The Christ of Corcovado was the work of the French sculptor of Polish origin Paul Landowski and the Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa.
The Corcovado Hill has a height of 700 meters, so this great statue dominates the city of Rio de Janeiro offering formidable views. An example of this is this beautiful video published by Vanrhyan Films, recorded with a drone and showing us the Christ of Corcovado as birds can see it:
You can see under these lines some captures of the video, which leave one speechless.
I do not want to end these lines without asking Christ the Redeemer to watch over the Brazilian people.
